From the moment you arrive you are greeted with traditional warm Japanese hospitality. Very beautiful setting with beautiful old woodwork and amazing hot springs-onsin. Everything is run very smoothly and is well explained. The bedrooms are well fitted and beautifully decorated. Breakfast and dinner whic was served in individual cabins was exceptional and very beautifully presented. The bonsai collection and... More

I have visited Japan since 2001 almost every time, if available, I select ryokan. Yes, the way of sleeping, bathing in onsen and meals. This Songkran day (13-15 April 2015, Thai New Year holiday) I visit Takayama and the choice went to Hidatei Hanougi. Comparing to quality of stay, sleeping quality, meals, environment and service, it is very reasonable. Starting... More

This was our only ryokan stay in Japan so we didn't have anything to compare it too but it was absolutely wonderful! They were so attentive to each and every detail and the service was above and beyond. There's a shuttle bus that regularly runs into town so the distance wasn't a problem. The meals were such a treat and... More

I stayed with 3 boys aged 3, 11 and 13 for 1 night at the end of our Takayama trip. The hotel itself is off the main sights but it does have pretty and peaceful grounds. I stayed in room 302 and couldn't fault it. The message chair and heated tables were bonus. The outdoor public onsen was fabulous. As... More

It is a bit far away from major attractions, about 7 minutes by taxi. It is a traditional "shoe-less" hotel completely covered by tatami. The hotel is decorated in traditional style which is beautiful and relaxing. Rooms are spacious and clean, with a small garden view. The dinner and breakfast are delicious. The onsen is good. Service is excellent. Most... More

Hidatei Hanaougi is truely beautiful and peaceful. The typical Japanese hospitality is second to none. I cannot praise highly enough of this place. The only regret I had is booking a night at Hidatei Hanaougi. I should have stayed here for at least 2 nights. First of all, upon arriving at Takayama train station, the bus driver will be holding...

We stayed at the Hidatei for 2 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The premises is very clean, lovely and with great service. We had two different meals on each night. The Hida beef that they served on the second night was plentiful and really good. The service is top notch and everyone is very helpful and greets you... More

Hidatei ryokan is a lovely full service, large, efficiently managed ryokan. The rooms are spacious, meals elaborate and excellent, and service top-notch. Unlike other ryoken we have stayed in, rooms at Hidatei include living area, bedroom, and full bath. Also, unlike other ryoken, meals are served in a separate dining area away from bedrooms. The outdoor onsen on a cold... More

We had a really great suite (room 322) but you can also have rooms with a private pool (which we did at our previous hotel). The dining experience is excellent traditional Japanese (with continental breakfast if you wish), in a private room with your own assistant for the duration of your stay. Ours had perfectly fluent English. The bath houses... More
